Just For Fun: Critique my horse

Ok so, I like looking at all of the conformation critique posts. It's really interesting to read what you guys think.

Well, here is my goofball gelding, Sunny. He's kind of funny looking, isn't he? We don't know what breed or breeds he is. This is just for fun, I know he doesn't have anywhere near good conformation.

So have at it! And if you have any opinions on what breed he might be, be sure to include that too!

Looks like a Quarter horse to me.

Ewe neck, Hammer headed, steep shoulder, knife withers, down hill build, very steep croup, long stif looking coupling, fery upright hind pasterns, nice low and large hocks, adequate bone, ccorrect front leg.

All that being said, he is groomed very nicely and I would guess he has a good disposition.

He has a weak topline from poll to tailhead, but I betcha with correct riding and work, that topline would look much better. I would not say he was ewe neck at all....his neck is longer on the top that it is on the bottom. He just has no muscle whatsoever. He looks like a horse that performs with a hollow back, no break at the wither and no flex at the poll. I love his deep heartgirth, but then he stays rectangular all the way back to the start is his croup. I'm loving the hock set on this guy...love the angle and the where it is placed on his leg.
